Adam Sandler made another movie and yes, it’s a comedy.

But that’s not the point here.

The character he plays is called Max Kessler, which again, isn’t particularly relevant.

Unless you're a 23-year-old accountant from New York whose name is also Max Kessler.

And you look like Adam Sandler’s separated-at-birth twin.

Then it becomes relevant.

Max Kessler saw the trailer for Sandler’s new Netflix movie Do-Over, and posted the following on Imgur and Reddit:

The name of Adam Sandler's character in his new movie, "The Do-Over" is Max Kessler. My name is Max Kessler. Oh yeah, and I look just like him.

The post quickly racked up the views (currently at over 7m), and at least one must have been by Sandler himself, because he responded.

What followed was a brief courtship:

Equal parts amazing (because they look exactly the same) and creepy (because they look exactly the same)...

Which led to Adam inviting Max to attend the premiere in Los Angeles...

So he did...

This must be fake though?

Max uploaded his I.D. card, because people were having some trouble believing him:

Although he's over 20 years younger than the actor, the resemblance really is uncanny.
